Sunday Prayers...

Posted by
Judy aka L@dybug (Brooksville, FL, United States) on 30 May 2010 in Animal & Insect and Portfolio.

Prayers go with you, Mr. Pelican as you fly so freely. Our prayers continue to focus on the devastation along the Louisiana coastline following the oil spill.

I support Viewfinder aka Glenn in his appeal for the pelicans and all shore creatures of Louisiana and the Gulf coast.

PS: Tomorrow I will break from the pelican series, to honor our Memorial Day and to remember all those who gave their lives in the defense of our country.

SONY DSLR-A100 1/500 second F/6.3 ISO 125 300 mm (35mm equiv.)

January 1st is around the corner, along with an end to my daily posts, at least for now.
Dementia is so debilitating and Hubby needs more of my time.

Nice capture of the pelicans beautiful graceful form.
The disaster becomes worse each day.

@Barbara: All I can say is that BP must be 'in bed' with our government officials and the darn oil lobbyists who are controlling things in Washington. It's hard to be proud of our country right now. :(

Viewfinder from Bradenton, FL, United States

Now that the "top kill" has failed to stop the spill, our prayers need to be directed for the entire Gulf Coast ecosystem. Through greed, carelessness, neglect, or just "because" it could operate without significant accountability -- BP has perhaps destroyed this beautiful place beyond repair, and possibly for the balance of our lifetimes.

@Viewfinder: Absolutely, Glenn ... the entire Gulf Coast ecosystem is in peril.

beautiful shot of a magnificent bird Judy - love the details you captured in this......

@Chris: Thanks, Chris ......... but tears flow for all the pelicans that have been and will be lost!

Susan from Fort Lauderdale, FL, United States

Great catch Judy........looks like you had a great catch of pelican shots in your travels.....and interestingly enough, i am also taking a "pelican break" tomorrow, to honor some of our human friends!!!

@Susan: We don't have pelicans at our local beaches; we have to travel south to find them, so that may be why when we've seen them, I've captured so many.
Tomorrow will be a short hiatus for good reasons.

Sandy Weston from Madison, Maine, United States

Really nice shot of these lovely birds. When I was a child and watched them on the beach I thought they were comical! They are so awesome to watch when they eat their fish....or walk around...you take them for granted....now they are endangered because of something man so haphazardly did.....

@Sandy Weston: Thanks, Sandy ... and I agree, they are awkward in a sense, but so majestically created.
I hope we don't lose them.

Magda from Vancouver, Canada

Wonderful capture!

@Magda: Thanks, Magda, as always.

JJ from Jersey City, United States

Another wonderful Pelican shot, this event has made me realize I have no Pelican shots and how a disaster like this could so damage the pelicans that less people will see them, hope they get there act together and stop the leak soon and start or continue cleaning up the environment

31 May 2010 4:42pm

@JJ: Thank you, JJ ... we're in a pickle, that's for sure. We pray the clean-up efforts will work before it's too late.

LauraS from Chico, United States

Keep it up, and I'll continue praying for the pelicans, and other life in the gulf coast area under attack by the oil flowing where it shouldn't be.
